BEDMINSTER, N.J. — Basketball Hall of Famer Charles Barkley, who has enjoyed tremendous popularity in his post-playing days through his work as an analyst for TNT and a corporate pitchman, has yet to receive a formal offer to join LIV Golf in a broadcasting role, he said Thursday.
At present, it would appear Barkley doesn’t have a decision to make. He said Thursday that despite meeting with LIV Golf CEO Greg Norman and expressing his receptiveness to receive an offer to work for LIV Golf as part of its broadcasting crew, no offer has yet been made.
“They haven’t offered me a contract. They asked me if I was interested and I said yes,” Barkley said. “I met with Greg and I told him yes. I’m in a win-win situation. If they offer me something good, that’s great. If they don’t, I’ve got a great job at TNT.”
